The Examiner gave The Strix 4 Stars!


This is what reviewer Acquenetta Ferguson had to say about The Strix:
"When I started reading this book, I didn't know where it was going to take me, but by the time I finished I was ready for book 2. There are elements of Greek Mythology and vampire lore interwoven around the tale of reincarnation, making this an incredibly interesting read.
In this book, The Strix are witches of vengeance who create their own warriors, which are brave, strong men who become infused with the witch’s evil by becoming an immortal being who not only lives for the kill but also for the blood. Unlike other vampire type stories, these creatures can have sex, but they can never be satisfied. In fact they are created by sex magic.
I loved the idea of these creatures being created in such way. But the book is not focused primarily on the vampire element, instead it takes the reader on a journey to the distant past as well as the present, as it is Arcona who in the past vows vengeance. The Arcona in present day, while having the same name, has no idea what she has done, because she has been reincarnated with a clean slate.
But the cosmos conspires to bring her back to herself, where she undoes the damage she has created in the past.
There is also sex that Arcona is having with multiple men in order for her to create her army of men. That is what made me realize that this book is not your typical romance, and I was ok with that. I love how Arcona, when she remembers her past, is truly a different person than the woman bent on her enemies ultimate destruction. She is truly sorry, and gives Tyr back his life.
Overall I really enjoyed the book. It kept me intrigued from beginning to end and the going back and forth in time just worked.
I give the book 4 stars and recommend this book for collection."
Thank you Acquentta!
